I don´t really understand why Palma council appears to be deeply opposed to the bar and restaurant terraces which have been set up along the Paseo del Borne in Palma. I would say that the terraces have helped bring this iconic part of Palma to life and also give tourists yet another attraction to enjoy. Everyone is agreed that the terraces are a step forward; well almost everyone. The council is not impressed and has done its best to get the chairs and tables removed. First, a referendum was held and the terraces won. Then the council ordered that the chairs and tables be removed to make space for the Palma Book Fair.
